Engine goes dead when gas is not apply

Hey , my dad's tundra is having some problem that he can't figure out. when he starts the engine, it would run for a short time then die. it will only stay alive if u press on the gas pedal but it dies if the gas pedal is release. he said that this problem starts happening after returning from a fishing trip, hauling his fishing boat. he can't seem to find the cause of the problem, can u help?

2000 tundra engine doesn't start only one "click" sound


Sounds like battery is dead or low on charge possibly from bad battery connections or bad alternator. Check cranking and charging systems.

2000 Tundra why I only hear click sound and nothing start the engine ?


The battery is probably dead and/or bad. Could be corroded battery cable connections. If not any of these then the alternator might be bad (not charging the battery) or the voltage regulator or start relay could be the problem. The start might be bad also.

06 4.0 v6 tundra won't start tried jumping it it just clicks once I unplugged the cables no power?


jumped with other car running?
if it clicks,
we next hot wire the starter solenoid,
if it clicks now with good battery (or running jump), it's a
1: bad starter. or 2: seized engine (turn by hand? yet)
if it cranks fast now hot wired, the KEY line is dead
ask how to fix either.

My 2008 toyota tundra ran out of gas i went and got gas, put the gas in but it wont start


I believe that the engine fitted into your vehicle is diesel fueled....Once this type of engine runs out of fuel, it is necessary to 'bleed' the system and remove all air from the fuel line
  • Open the bonnet (hood)
  • On top of the fuel filter housing is a flat silver metal plunger which must be pumped until it becomes hard.
  • Once the air has been removed, the engine should start.

The car only have 43,000 ml on it but it have


first drain the engine oil and oil filter.next replace the battery and clean the battery cables.then you will need to siphon out the old gas or if below quarter of tank added 5 gal. of gas to gas tank then disconnect dist.ign. lead on side of dist.and crank engine over with out starting.for about 10 sec. do this 4-5 times then crank over for 30 sec.this will help get oil to the bearings.next hook up the dist. and check all wires for rodent chewing and repair if found.then check antifreeze in radiator may need to change along with thermostat,and possible all hoses they may be dry rotted. the front seal on the water pump may start leaking after running so you may want to replace. try and start engine.do not drive. wish you the best let me know how it goes.

Hey Guys my dads 97 Suburban4x4 is having truble


Ok does the engine turn (easely) when you start it up, if yes, then you got you're self a "crank but won't start" condition. That is a little more complicated but if it simply won't turn when you start then you got a "no crank" condition witch is preaty simple.
First be absolutely sure that you're battery is good, try an other battery on it, one that you know is good. If it starts, change you're battery. I've often seen batterys that charge but go completely dead a soon as you take the charger off of them.
Second, verify the wiring, simply inspect the cable that goes directly to the starter for a cut or damage, also don't forget to check out the engine to body ground, witch usualy corodes and cuts (it's located near the crankshaft balancer and goes directly to the boby) Repair if neaded. Also verify that you're starter relay clicks when you start. If it does not clic, then you got a burned out fuse (fuse #6 in underhood fuse block), a faulty circuit or a faulty relay (underhood fuse block)(can try an other similar relay to verify). You can also try to bypass the starter circuit by simply using a screwdriver to jump the current from the positive pole (big red wire) to the "s" pole (small purple wire) of the starter. Use caution cause sparks will fly and engine may start. If the engine starts, then you know for sure the trouble is in the control circuit.
Third, verify that you hear the starter solenoid clic when you start. Have one of you're buddys start the truck and listen for a loud and clear clic (It is realy loud) If it does not clic at all or is not loud, and all the wiring and relay is ok, then the starter may be the cause (usualy only the solenoid gives away, witch can be changed seperatly)
Good luck, hope this will help

VSC OFF, Check engine and traction control lights are on


I would suggest having your mechanic scan the computer for viable trouble codes. WIthout that information, it is hard to determine the exact cause of your problem.

However, my experiences with the Tundra leads me to suggest that you have a bad Mass Air Flow Sensor...A concise scan and any codes would alow us to really help you out a lot better.
